Expressions of Interest Sought for Bulk Transfer of Registrations

17 July 2009

As the result of the recent de-accreditation of registrar Lead Networks Domains 
Pvt. Ltd. ("Lead Networks"), ICANN is seeking expressions of interest from 
ICANN-accredited registrars that might wish to assume sponsorship of the gTLD 
names that were previously managed by Lead Networks. This request for 
expressions of interest is made pursuant to the De-Accredited Registrar 
Transition Procedure posted at 

The de-accredited registrar managed approximately 70-80,000 registrations in 
dot-com and dot-net, and was accredited in no other gTLDs. Escrowed 
registration data is available for the sponsored registrations and is believed 
to be complete (including registrant, administrative, technical, and billing 
contact data, as well as nameservers and expiration dates).

ICANN-accredited registrars who wish to be considered as potential recipients 
of the bulk transfer should be in good standing with regard to all 
ICANN-obligations and submit an Expression of Interest, using the form 
available at 
 [DOC, 37K], by no later than 23:00 UTC on Thursday, 23 July 2009.

ICANN reserves the right to entertain any or none of the statements of interest 
submitted in response to this request and to select or approve a bulk-transfer 
recipient outside this process.

Registrar questions and submissions should be submitted by email to 
mike.zupke@xxxxxxxxx<mailto:mike.zupke@xxxxxxxxx>. Customers of Lead Networks 
should refer to ICANN's posted announcement at 
 for registrant FAQs.
